Kilz is great! We used it when we moved into our house to cover the soot on the walls from the previous owners.Sounds weird...but I want to get my ceiling and window seal painted with Kilz...so I can paint it. Our bathroom has been torn apart for years. I'm over it..and taking steps to do something, even if it's not remodeled like it needs to be. I'm hoping if I take this step while my hubby is out of town this week he'll proceed to do SOMETHING!!
My linen closet just needs to be organized a tad..it's not bad. I do need to toss some towels though, so I'll commit to doing that as well this week. I usually donate them to the animal shelter so I'll bag them up. I'm actually driving by the animal shelter this week so it's the perfect time to get that done.
Refocusing to the holiday prep first has made me feel a lot better these past few weeks. Here's what life has looked like since Week I of HHP - three weeks of preparing for and working an all day music festival, volleyball every weekend, six college visits and multiple ongoing visits to the orthopedic for my daughter's foot injury. Knowing that I will have things somewhat together in spite of the chaos is making me feel calm. I hope it does for you too.HolidayMom -- I've been thinking lots about what you said back on Week 2 or 3 and that you are calmer if the Christmas stuff is on pace because you know the family will rally on the house stuff. I'm thinking I'm going to redo my list to focus mainly on Christmas and just broad stroke the household stuff. Came across my deadline sheet that DH and I wrote down and signed last year. We agreed and promised that the lists (including all big purchases) would be decided by early Oct, shopping done late Oct/early Nov and pretty much wrapped up at Black Friday weekend. So uhm we are already late. We only have half the big decisions made. We are going to discuss this weekend and see if we can't hustle it up a bit and get on track, More later with a revised list. (DFIL's house is taking a LOT of time -- but its always something right?)
